    Hey, whatever's clever, you know. I just had to do this exact work to my niece's Honda Fit, because the wheels were stuck on, and I needed my big prybar to pop them off so I could rotate the bastards.

    Stupid dissimilar metals. You should see all the barrier devices between aluminum fenders, hoods, doors, etc. and the steel parts they attach too. You should see what happens when some body shop forgets to install them during a repair.

    Yes, I have. If I had had time and a bottle of anti-seize, I would've dolled up the wheels, discs and drums right where they attach to the hub. There's a reason Japanese manufacturer's put threaded holes for forcing screws on the drums and discs.

    To force rusted drums and discs off the hubs.

    Yeah, right. The only thing they understand is the Prybar of Justice. Funny, wheels not locked to the hubs by corrosion are like dogs wanting an immediate belly rub, soon as they're at your feet, in comparison. They just fall off and hang on the topmost stud (except Eurotrash cars, a tire falling all the way off is like a Terrier ankle-biting you).
